WJN accepts both solicited and unsolicited manuscripts. Articles published in WJN are high-quality, basic and clinical, influential research articles by established academic authors as well as new researchers. The paramount objective of WJN is to showcase and promote distinguished research in the field of nephrology, to help advance development of this field.

Aim The primary aim of WJN is to provide scholars and readers from various fields of nephrology with a platform to publish high-quality basic and clinical research articles and communicate their research findings online.
